For Sale: 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte, North Carolina, is proud to list this outstanding 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle. The Beetle was a masterpiece of innovation and economics-it was compact but practical and inexpensive to buy and maintain. The car's curved exterior not only gave it a groundbreaking look but was also aerodynamic. Rear-wheel drive and its small stature gave the Beetle agile handling, particularly compared to the American land yachts of its day. The innovative air-cooled engine required less maintenance and was easy to fix.The Super Beetle was a vast improvement over the standard Beetles. Instead of using the standard Beetle's torsion bar, the Super Beetle came with a MacPherson strut front suspension assembly. This change gave the Super Beetle a greater turning radius and improved its driving quality. Another distinction between the Super Beetle and the standard Beetle is their size. With a slightly longer and wider body than the VW Beetle, the Super Beetle expanded its storage capacity. This made it possible to fit the spare tire and still have room for groceries. When you walk up to this Super Beetle, you instantly know it's been well cared for. The blue paint shines brilliantly and makes the chrome bumpers and trim dance. The interior has an updated audio system and looks just as good as the outside. Driving this car is a blast! It runs and drives great! A smooth-shifting four-speed manual transmission makes it so much fun to go through the gears. If you have been looking for an extremely clean Super Beetle, call us today because it won't be here long.Enjoy the carefree days of hitting the backroads with the wind blowing through the cabin while you listen to the melodic hum of the flat-four engine buzzing around the corners behind you.
